Asset Report (duplicate names/different ips)

While running a report for a the number of Windows 2012 servers I found multiple entries with the same netbios name but different IP.

I understand that these could be from multiple nics, but in this case there was over 10 entries with the same name and different ip. Checking nslookup the name shows up different for the ips

 

How does Qualys get the DNS./ Netbios name? Is there a way to confirm the exact inventory without duplicate names?
